From the Back Cover

"Basics Film-Making: Directing Fiction" will help you create artistically satisfying short films. Offering an accessible introduction to the key elements of directing such as script, casting, location, sound and editing, there is also advice on how to distribute your productions.

Robert Edgar-Hunt offers both a practical approach to the discipline as well as a theoretical exploration, explaining why a basic grounding in film theory is essential for every film-maker in order to inform and enrich their work. "Basics Film-Making: Directing Fiction" examines classic movies to illustrate key concepts and provides exercises designed to test and build on your understanding of directing. There is also an insightful interview with Mark Herman, director of classic films such as "Brassed Off," "Little Voice" and "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas."

Other titles in the "Basics Film-Making" series include: "Screenwriting, Producing" and "The Language of Film."
